Page 3 - Here we go


     Show one is in Atlanta's Variety Playhouse and we'll be travelling in to Atlanta from all over.

Adrian is driving in from Nashville - Robert Frazza (our sound engineer) is driving the Stick Men van down from Kingston NY - a 960 mile jaunt!
Pat will fly in from Texas, I'll fly in from Newark, and Markus from Innsbruck, Austria.

So, when we meet onstage for this first "soundcheck"... it'll be quite an intense couple of hours to set up both bands, get sounds right, and rehearse some of the six piece Crimson material.

  Pretty cool, isn't it!

  but wait...

That's just the early, first version -- Denis Rodier, the brilliant Quebecois artist, has turned from his dark comic book work to do the tour art for us, and this time, instead of keeping the early ideas to ourselves, we're sharing them with you. It'll be fun to see how it progresses to the finished poster, oui?

(We're thinking it'll warrant a tour t-shirt too.)

See your town in there? I hope so, because the only side excursions we'll be making are into a roadside Subway to get a quick tuna sandwich, hold the onions cause they'll stink up the van, Pat can you grab me a coffee, come on guys let's get back in the van.

Street team will be a must for us, to help get the word out in each city, about the show.
We'll get some contact info up here soon, and if you're in one of the cities and would like to help out, please let us know.

More soon, as things progress toward the tour --- you could call this page
The road to... the road!

New: Poster is coming along ... here is another version, darkened in, without text:

And... let's get some names in there...

Almost there... and I'm loving how the audience has a demented look to them (so do the players, of course!)

Ready for the finished version?

Let's start another page...
